Our Tiles

Our tiles are handmade from a coarse white stoneware clay which makes them suitable for indoor or outdoor installation. They will withstand heat, freezing temperatures, high humidity and wet weather. Most of our single tiles come with a notch in the back for easy hanging on a nail or hook. Our tiles are approximately 3/8" to 1/2" thick and generally measure about 1/8" - 1/4" smaller than stated size to allow for a grout line.

Tile Colors

Because of the handmade quality of our tiles, there may be variations in size and color from tile to tile. Most of our glazes have natural variation in color and sheen due to the application and firing process. Please contact us if you would like to see specific colors in person. You may request free samples of the glazes on our Colors page.

Decorative Tiles

Our decorative tiles, except for the mosaic style, are made with high relief design and are hand pressed in plaster molds. You may use our decorative tiles in an installation mixed in with commercially made field tile or handmade field tile. Although we do not make field tile, we can provide you with some links to companies that do. Custom designs are also possible. Please contact us if you would like a custom design created. We can provide a cost estimate.

Tile Murals

Our tile murals are groupings of decorative tiles or a set of tiles that create a scene. Tile murals are shipped as separate pieces for installation. Our tiles also look great framed and hung on the wall as an art piece. We don't make frames but are happy to provide contact information for some quality framing studios.
